Answer the ten questions you have been asked.
Nominate ten other bloggers and ask them ten other questions.
What is your favorite part of blogging?
My favorite part of blogging so far is the community. I had no idea that there were so many people out there who were blogging about books! When I decided to start my blog, I really had no idea what to expect. Everyone is so great and welcoming to newbies.
Have you had any other blogs?
Kind of. I have started a few blogs and let them fade away. In coming up with the idea for a book blog, I started up a lifestyle kind of blog that had fashion, beauty, and book posts. That blog was created and never updated. I used to have a lot of personal/journal types of blogs back in the day too.
What is the biggest thing you’ve learned from book blogging? To be honest, the biggest and most surprising thing I’ve learned is that you can get free advanced copies of books! I never dreamed that it would be even possible when I started this up.
Has book blogging changed your life? If so, elaborate. 🙂 I’m still new at this, so my life hasn’t changed drastically – yet! The main difference I’ve noticed are that I spend more time on my book Twitter and Instagram than my personal ones. I also have a lot less money, since it all goes to books 😉
What is your biggest blogging milestone? I was very excited when I hit 200 followers. I’m closer to 400 now, but I won’t forget that feeling of getting to 200. Each day seeing that you have new followers on some platform is really exciting. There were also a few bloggers out there that I was hoping to connect with, and I did!
Do you have any blogging tips? Do whatever you want! I think it’s important to realize that blogging is for FUN and, especially for book bloggers, because you like to read. My biggest thing is that I will always read what I want to read. I’ll review everything I read. I don’t care if it’s a book from 2009 and no one comments on the review. It’s all about doing what you want to do and enjoying it.
What is your favorite genre to read? I’m a big mood reader. If I go on a contemporary binge for a few books, I will definitely need to switch into fantasy or sci-fi afterwards. I would say my favorite in a general sense is YA contemporary. My favorite topic or subject for books to deal with are parallel universe/multiverse. I just think they’re so interesting.
What books do you like to review most? (ARCs, new releases, older books that may not get much attention, etc.)
As I mentioned, I read and review whatever! I like reviewing ARCs, when I have them, because I feel like people are more interested in new or upcoming releases. Otherwise, I really just review everything I read. Normally it’s a mix of all three!
What book do you wish would be turned into a movie? This is tough! I rarely want books to become movies because then I get nervous that it’ll get ruined. The most recent example I can think of is A Christmas to Remember by Jenny Hale. That book would make an amazing holiday movie on Hallmark or Lifetime. It was cozy, heartwarming, and incredibly enjoyable.
I’ve seen this one around a lot lately, so I’m tagging anyone who hasn’t been tagged! Here are your questions:
Why did you decide to start blogging?
